Food Resources benefitting St. Mary’s County, Maryland

​Feed St. Mary’s is working to build partnerships with state and national networks of nutritional support, supplying resources to serve our community.

Maryland Food Bank

Founded in 1979, the Maryland Food Bank supplies food to more than 1,250 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and faith-based organizations that serve food-insecure Marylanders. 

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

SNAP is the largest domestic hunger safety net program, and offers assistance to millions of eligible, low-income families.

Existing Food Pantries and Soup Kitchens

Currently serving St. Mary’s County (Please Note: Some hours have changed)

In recent years, food pantries and soup kitchens in St. Mary’s have relied on donations and long trips to distant food banks to banks to obtain resources for their clients. These methods often proved inadequate to secure the food they need. Feed St. Mary’s will create a local resource for higher volumes of food, delivered into the county for distribution. Existing and future food pantries and soup kitchens in St. Mary’s will be welcomed to replenish their supplies from the Feed St. Mary’s food bank.
